The Premier League champions' season in stats

Adjust Comment Print

Vincent Kompany is already looking ahead to next season, just hours after Manchester City were confirmed as the 2017/18 Premier League champions following Manchester United's shock defeat to West Brom at Old Trafford.

The ownership change has certainly made an impact as City sealed their third Premier League title under the ADUG in a decade after many years of indifferent results of mid-table and relegation battles, which also saw them drop down to the lower divisions a couple of times.

But sealing the silverware thanks to a slip from old enemies United and their boss Jose Mourinho - a long-time rival of Guardiola - was a sweet moment, especially after they lost to their neighbours in the Manchester derby last weekend.

City, who rebounded from the United loss and a European exit at the hands of Liverpool by beating Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday, have 87 points with five games left. The trophy is a well-deserved reward for their dominant performances, and they look set to break even more records with 5 games more to play.

"That's the reason why they were champions and probably because I won eight championships I was not in the moon [sic] with the victory against them [last week] because that doesn't make me feel super happy".

I want to see how we react now next season.

The X-shaped back of the phone is meant to ensure a better grip and the frame doubles up as an antenna for stronger connectivity. After several leaks and teaser, Xiaomi funded Black Shark has finally unveiled its much anticipated gaming smartphone in China.

Soon after the ADUG takeover, club's chief executive Garry Cook was quoted saying "China and India are gagging for football content to watch and we're going to tell them that City is their content".

Manchester United hold the current record of Premier League winning margin of 18 points and City and breach this feat too. I have seen many teams win it as champions for the whole season, and it's the first case for us. I'm sure they are differences to how we play today compared to Bayern and Barcelona, we survive and live by the strength of the team.

Fuelled by the majestic form of Kevin De Bruyne, David Silva, Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling, City set a new Premier League record earlier this season by winning 18 successive matches. "One of the things we have to improve is our consistency".

"You can not imagine", Guardiola said on Saturday.

"They won the title because they were the best team, because they won a great amount of points". Guardiola had planned a day of golf with his son Marius on Sunday, so the Spaniard might have learned of his first Premier League while on the course.
